About this event

You are invited to join the IET Multimedia Communications Network for an exclusive behind the scenes visit to one of London’s iconic landmarks

The British Telecom Communication Tower in London's West End was the first purpose-built tower to transmit high frequency radio waves, and it serves as a functional telecommunications centre designed to relay broadcast, Internet and telephone information around the world.

Costing £2 million to construct, the 189m (620ft) cylindrical tall tower is made from 13,000 tonnes of concrete, steel and glass, and at the time of official opening (1966) was the tallest building in London.
